Christine and Dan’s elopement inspired engagement session was one of the most fun sessions we’ve had the pleasure of photographing! What started out with a conversation about dogging some burgers in a white dress, emerged into a fun session around downtown with a couple of our very own celebrities.

It’s no secret that we really love engagement sessions with our clients, because it gives us a chance to get to know each other and have fun – with no timelines or guidelines to adhere to. It’s especially fun when the couple has some ideas on what types of images they have in their head. This is a perfect example of how a crazy little idea can quickly turn into something wonderful!


There aren’t too many words needed to tell the story of our afternoon together, the images tell the story themselves, but we had so much fun here near the Onondaga County Court House,  and in Columbus Circle!

And they were especially forgiving of their paparazzi, too!
